Babyteeth is a bittersweet comedy that is based on a play which was performed at the Belvoir theatre in 2012. The play centres around Milla, a fourteen year old girl who is going through repeat treatment for cancer. Despite the seriousness of this situation throughout, the play is very funny was many parts. The play explored the way human beings cope with grief and deal with life.
Ben Mendelsohn and Essie Davis will be playing the parents of Milla so we will be expecting some outstanding performances. The original play only had seven actors but often screen adaptations have more supporting roles due to the greater flexibility that film offers. We can’t wait to see this one either way.
